FS7 Cool-Rig with Counterweight
The FS7 Cool-Rig with Counterweight is a solid, completely balanced shoulder and tripod mounting solution for the Sony FS7. When you run a particularly front heavy setup, there’s a certain point when you need some weight to balance everything out. Sure you can mount everything further back on the SHIFT Baseplate making for a lighter rig, but push everything too far back and you can’t get to any of the controls on the camera or you can kiss using a follow focus goodbye because your face is in the way. In such instances you’ll want to add some weight to the back of the rig to get the camera into a more manageable position.
The rig comes with the Cool-Lux SHIFT Baseplate, a M6 rosette mount for attaching the FS7 handle anywhere along the camera rig’s iris rods and a Counterweight system for dialing in the perfect amount of counterbalance. Also included is a single 8" Carbon Fiber Iris rod that replaces the rod that mounts the FS7 Viewfinder. This longer rod allows the user to push the viewfinder farther forward for a shorter and lighter rig. The SHIFT Baseplate’s sliding dovetail allows for over 4.5 inches of travel for quick and easy balancing adjustments. A set of 8 inch, height adjustable, carbon fiber iris rods are included for mounting accessories such as a follow focus or matte box and 4 inch carbon fiber iris rods are also included for mounting the Counterweight onto the rear of the rig.
